Bow-Tie Pasta Salad http://www.davita.com/recipes/salads and salad dressings/bow-tie-pasta-salad/a/5658

Pasta salad is a family favorite, but if you’re on the dialysis diet, you may have thought you couldn’t enjoy it. Not true, thanks to our recipe from DaVita renal dietitian Robin from Florida. Her recipe for Bow-tie Pasta Salad is filled with crunchy veggies, including celery, bell pepper, carrot and purple onion, then topped with a light dressing made from mayonnaise, sugar, lemon juice and pepper. The result is a pasta salad everyone will love, yet it’s low in cholesterol, sodium, potassium,  phosphorus and calcium.
